Eight years on from the biggest market meltdown since the great depression, the key lessons of the crisis of 2008 still remain unlearned—and our financial system is just as vulnerable as ever. many of us know that our government failed to fix the banking system after the subprime mortgage crisis. but what few of us realize is how the misguided financial practices and philosophies that nearly toppled the global financial system have come to infiltrate all american businesses, putting us on a collision course for another cataclysmic meltdown. drawing on
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER * A roadmap to what lies ahead and the decisions we must make now to stave off the next global economic and financial crisis, from one of the world's most influential economic thinkers and the author of When Markets Collide * With a new introduction by the author "The one economic book you must read now . . . If you want to understand [our] bifurcated world and where it's headed, there is no better interpreter than Mohamed El-Erian."--Time Our current economic path is coming to an end. The signposts are all around us: sluggish growth, rising inequality, stubbornly high pockets of unemployment, and jittery financial markets, to name a few. Soon we will reach a fork in the road: One path leads to renewed growth, prosperity, and financial stability, the other to recession and market disorder. In The Only Game in Town, El-Erian casts his gaze toward the future of the global economy and markets, outlining the choices we face both individually and collectively in an era of economic uncertainty and financial insecurity. Beginning with their response to the 2008 global crisis, El-Erian explains how and why our central banks became the critical policy actors--and, most important, why they cannot continue is this role alone. They saved the financial system from collapse in 2008 and a multiyear economic depression, but lack the tools to enable a return to high inclusive growth and durable financial stability. The time has come for a policy handoff, from a prolonged period of monetary policy experimentation to a strategy that better targets what ails economies and distorts the financial sector--before we stumble into another crisis. The future, critically, is not predestined. It is up to us to decide where we will go from here as households, investors, companies, and governments. Using a mix of insights from economics, finance, and behavioral science, this book gives us the tools we need to properly understand this turning point, prepare for it, and come out of it stronger. A comprehensive, controversial look at the realities of our global economy and markets, The Only Game in Town is required reading for investors, policymakers, and anyone interested in the future.
